Tools and materials:

#2 Philips head screw driver
Standard flat-tip screw driver
1/4" nut driver or ratchet
1/4" drive sockets: 1/4, 5/16
Something 3-4 inches thick to wedge under drum for support (i.e. scrap 4x4, soap bottle, books)

Replacement Procedures:

1. Unplug dryer from wall outlet
2. Pull out lint screen
3. Remove 2 Philips screws attaching lint trap to dryer top
4. Lift hinged dryer top panel near front and lean it back on wall. You may need to pry between side panels and top with flat-tip screw driver to get it started.

9. Slip replacement belt around drum with ribs facing drum and position it where old belt left its mark.
10. Wedge something under drum to support it while installing the belt.
11. Re-position tensioner in two slots in bottom panel just in front of motor. On my model the bend in the spring will be on the right side with the idler pulley to the left, when viewed from the front.
12. Ensuring the belt isn't twisted, thread a small loop of it through the opening in the tensioner just below the pulley.
13. With the left hand, push against the tensioner spring while working the loop over the drive pulley.
14. While supporting drum with one hand, remove whatever you put under the drum to support it.
15. Replace front panel by aligning the slots with the tabs near the bottom and lowering it into place.

19. Lower the dryer top and press until it snaps back into place.
20. Replace philips screws to secure lint trap and replace lint screen.

Unplugged the dryer from the electric outlet; removed the screws from the back panel, removed screws from the unit and pulled down and outward to release the unit. Removed the wires and attached to the new unit. Plugged the dryer in to see if the unit worked. It worked, so I unplugged the electrical cord, replaced the back panel and screwed in the screws.

Removed rear panel and replaced sensor. Sad thing is this was not the problem.It was the coil valves! They are a $20 part together, and I wish I would have replaced them first! There is two of them that are on the main valve for the gas! Remove the front cover of machine. Make sure the gas is off , remove the bracket holding the valves in and this it! Quick simply repair that is where I should have started!

No Heat

After checking the PartsSelect website, I found that the most likely cause for my no heat problem was the Thermal Fuse and the Cycling Thermostat. I ordered both since they are located next to each other on the dryer. I followed the instructions in the video, first removing the dryer back. Next I located and removed both parts. I also did a cleaning of the dryer compartment since the back was already removed. Installed the 2 parts according the the video and re-installed the dryer back. It is now running like new. Great website, excellent video instructions saving me $600 to replace a perfectly good working appliance.

I diagnosed the problem using the web page. It said that 60% of the people with my problem bought the Thermal Fuse. I unplugged the dryer AND cut the power at the fuse box. I used a screwdriver to remove the vent hose, a nutdriver to remove the back of the machine. The thermal fuse was right there. Removed the old one with a screwdriver, unplugged the wires from the old one and snapped on new one, and screwed it back in. Re-installed the back of the dryer and the vent hose and Whoila! It works like a champ.

Thermal Cut-Off Kit (279816) was the wrong part for our Whirlpool Dryer Model. The thermal cut-off replacement part did not match the incumbent part. Before ordering this kit, I would recommend homeowners remove the back of the dryer and verifying this kit would work on their dryer. In our situation, it was a fuse that had to be replaced. Although your kit did not help or address my problem, I found the buying experience and the DIY reassurance to be positive. Hopefully the refund process will be equally positive. Thank you.

Clothes not drying

  • Customer: Sallie from Apollo beach, FL
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

I cleaned out the vent inside and out. I removed the hose and checked the heat output, there was none. I ordered the Heating element, and the fuse as it was cheap enough not to have to go in a second time. I used a nut driver to remove screws, installed new part. The hardest was removing a small part from the old element that is needed to be added to the new Element. I switched on dryer to check for heat then replace back panel. I don think it has ever worked this well. I was bought 5 years ago from an unused model home.

Removed front and back covers on dryer, screws on top and down one side to spread cabinet to remove drum,removed blower cover to get access to shaft nut on that side. The other is accessible. I found that both shafts can bethe longer of the two that were sent. The shorter shaft is too short and needed to be modified to let the roller come outward to lay in the grove in the drum. I will get a longer shaft and replace it.
